Churches give thanks; ELCA churches take turns hosting Thanksgiving Eve services


Plenty of people attend Christmas Eve services, but a group of churches in Jamestown will unite once again this year for a Thanksgiving Eve service, starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. John’s Lutheran Church.

The longstanding tradition joins together people from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America churches in Jamestown — Trinity, Atonement, Immanuel and St. John’s Lutheran.

However, everyone is welcome to attend, said the Rev. Suzanne Orlopp, pastor at St. John’s.
